Operation MetaPhile: AG Puts Blame On Meta For Enabling Child Predator

Another undercover operation is underway against the wave of pedos that keep appearing.

This one is entitled Operation MetaPhile, and they focus on using Meta’s sites, Facebook and Instagram.

Turns out those two sites aren’t doing much to prohibit groomers and predators from going after the kids.

In fact, you might say they’re encouraging it and giving them a helping hand in their search for children and for marketing their corrupt material.

Attorney General Raúl Torrez doesn’t beat around the bush.

He calls out Meta and says they’re to blame for this predators lurking on their sites.

CBS News reports:

Police were waiting at a motel room in Gallup, New Mexico, Tuesday when 52-year-old Fernando Clyde showed up to meet someone he was expecting to be a 12-year-old girl.

Police body camera video obtained exclusively by CBS News showed Clyde being arrested on charges that he sent unsolicited sexual messages on Facebook Messenger to who he thought was a girl, but was actually an undercover special agent for the New Mexico Justice Department.

“These are individuals who explicitly use this platform to find and target these children,” New Mexico Attorney General Raúl Torrez said in a news briefing Wednesday.

The sting was part of “Operation MetaPhile,” which also resulted in the arrest Tuesday of 29-year-old Marlon Kellywood at the same motel on similar charges.

The profile photo of the girl was created using artificial intelligence, officials said, and attracted potential predators.

“They initiated a sexual conversation,” Torrez told CBS News. “They were sending images, graphic images, of genitalia. They were making really horrific statements about their interest in sex with these children.”

Torrez was critical of how Meta — the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, and its CEO Mark Zuckerberg — have handled such security concerns.

“I think it’s abundantly clear that that Meta and executives like Mr. Zuckerberg don’t have any intention of dedicating the kinds of resources necessary to making sure that these platforms are safe,” Torrez said. “If they could make this safe on their own, they would’ve done it by now.”

The arrests come after exclusive reporting from CBS News last December revealed New Mexico’s separate civil lawsuit against Meta which alleges the company “enabled adults to find, message, and groom minors, soliciting them to sell pictures or participate in pornographic videos.”

This is linked back to AG Torrez lawsuit against Meta last December:

Looks like they still use the code word “PIZZA”

Keeping praying that this all gets exposed, protection for the kids and that the wicked ones are stopped and brought to justice.
